Each unit is pleasantly decorated and furnished; some have been modernized and upgraded more than others, but all that we have rented have been comfortable. The grounds (lush botanical garden) are beautifully maintained; beach access is convenient; the staff...

Dolphins swam up to us. Great beach access with nice chairs. Always a pleasure. Just disappointed our unit wasn't as updated and bed stunk big...

Our condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. (unit 311) We made use of many of the amenities- the grills, fitness room, laundry facility, pool. Everything was top...

First time to Sanibel Island. Thoroughly enjoyed our room and beautiful grounds and beach. Staff was very cordial. Really enjoyed Captain Kevin's shell lecture and nature cruise at Ding Darling Refuge.

I have stayed at Sanibel Moorings for many years and it has always been a wonderful place to stay.

I have really enjoyed my vacation here. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, with hibiscus bushes and African tulip trees. There is a heated swimming pool, conference center, and easy (less than 5 minutes) beach access with big umbrellas and lounge chairs provided. The units are clean and comfortable. Our unit did not have a washer/dryer combo, but there was a...

Everyone here was very helpful before and during our stay. We received some packages and they helped me send some back. It was a great place to go with little ones and right on the beach!

Our first trip to the island and Sanibel Moorings was wonderful! Very comfortable unit, lovely beach. Great to have choice of beach chairs and umbrellas...no need to race to get a place at the beach. The fantastic weather certainly made it even more enjoyable! Hope to return!

Sanibel Moorings has been a great place for us to stay while on the island. We've been visiting since roughly 1996. This time we took advantage of the bicycles available at the Moorings and took a ride to Tarpon Rd Beach. We especially appreciate the friendly and responsive staff at the Moorings -- they are well trained in customer service....

“Try to get a condo that's either beach front or beach view. The condos overlooking the parking lot (and the street) are as large and clean as the others, but breakfast and cocktails on the veranda certainly is not the same thing. Also, don't get a condo overlooking the pool--they tend to be loud. There are nice condos across the street overlooking the canal, but it's a farther walk to the beach. Again, try to get canal front or canal views--away from the pool.”
